Publish or Perish: Academic Writing and Other Strategies to Navigate the Publishing World

Panels and Plenary, Workshops and Student Development

Building on the CSA Student Concerns Sub-Committee’s publishing workshop in 2016, this year’s publishing workshop will look at academic writing for publication – identified as a top priority for CSA student members in a recent survey. Panelists will review key tips for the writing process – from the identification of the audience through to the editing of the article, pre-submission, and the review process. How to identify and select journals, publications and publishers will also be discussed. The Student Concerns Sub-Committee will also launch its Mentorship program, as a way the CSA can support graduate students as they navigate the “publish or perish” world of academia. Students are encouraged to bring their questions and experiences for this interactive session.


Light refreshments will be served.
